Uptown Charm's Gift Guide for all your Favorite People!

Updated: Nov 4, 2020


This holiday season I'm offering some help on what to purchase for some of your favorite people! While I think our Holiday Facial Bundle would be the perfect stocking stuffer for anyone on your list - below is a more specific guide for you to follow (or forward to someone)! Also, I am so "here" for gifting experiences and usable items rather than stuff that collects in someone's home!


Feel free to send us your shopping list via email (info@charmnola.com) or call us 504.533.9632! You can pick up or I can ship for you around the country. I have beautiful, classic gift wrapping available. (If something says out of stock - just shoot me an email and I'll make sure to place you on the waitlist and your order will be filled first thing when they are back in stock (before the holidays!)


Ordering online? Make sure you visit our homepage for 15% off your first order.


 

Your Girlfriend

While your girlfriend may love all our services here at Uptown Charm, you might be interested in something a little sexier than a plain old gift card for her this year. I know she'll love any of these items or a combo of services and products to make her feel her very best and she'll think you are oh-so-romantic!





The Girlfriend Bundle

*A Gift Certificate for a Rapid Spray Tan (she'll want to use this for New Year's Eve, your next big date, before your next trip, or if she just wants a little pick me up of confidence!)

*Ladione Wild Rose and Oud Dry Body Oil - This gorgeously scented, fast-absorbing dry body oil delivers hydrating and invigorating benefits to the entire body for a more youthful appearance.   Infused with real rose buds and 9 high-performance moisturizing botanical oils that contain essential fatty acids, nutrients, and vitamins to hydrate dry skin. 

*Mad Darling Candle - these 100% soy candles are made locally in NOLA and do not cause headaches the way some candles can. With the fun NOLA inspired names and scents, you can choose something that will be a romantic inside joke, or a fragrance she loves.

*Lip Plumping Complex - adds volume, softens, reduces lines, and maintains moisture

*NovaLash Mascara - this beeswax-based mascara is actually healthy and safe for lashes and doesn't dry them out like it's competitors. She'll especially love this gift if she gets lash extensions or has had our KLI treatment!


For Mom

Are you never exactly sure what to get for mom? You know she deserves it ALL, but where to begin? I suggest one of the two favorites below. Our mom clients (and our own mommas) love both of these options!!


A Mom's Favorite Bundle

*Dermaplane + Hydra Silk Treatment and a Billion Dollar Brows Brow Kit Combo: includes a facial with a light enzyme mask and Uptown Charm's signature HydraSilk formulation that will rejuvenate and super hydrate your skin with a cooling effect, instantly revealing a healthy youthful glow. Plus its super pampering! Add to that our Best Selling Brow Kit and mom will be feeling her absolute best!



Long Distance Mommas

*Facial Kit Subscription: Mom will love this monthly reminder of how much you care! Plus, monthly facials are the best thing you can do for your skin, but with busy schedules, they are hard to fit in! Mom will receive a seasonal facial kit at her doorstep every month. Each kit will include a full facial treatment with 6-8 steps, designed by a professional esthetician with fresh masks and ingredients found in a dermatologist office and high-end spas. 


Gifts for New Moms


Our "Above the Mask" Package is also perfect for new moms!


*Our Keratin Lash Lift & Tint + Brows on Fleek (shape/wax/henna) enusre makeup application unnecessary due to the custom tinting of the lashes and brows. Perfect for new moms who rarely have empty arms.


PLUS the Collagen Eye treatment: Provides an instant, radiant look and reduces the appearance of dark circles, puffiness, wrinkles, and fine lines. (Hello sleepless nights!)

*Ceramide Pearls: Beautiful and convenient - new mommies will love the daily skin nourishment that reduces signs of aging and the many other benefits of these capsules. Perfect stocking stuffer in our travel size - or ask about the larger size as something to pop under the tree!


Mom-to-Be


Our mommas-to-be love to get the following 3 services before their due date.


*Bikini/Brazilian Wax - I think the reason is pretty clear. Let us know if you need an explanation.


*Lash Extensions or Keratin Lash Infusion - Our mommas want long, lovely lashes for those first newborn photos.


*A Rapid Spray Tan: Beautiful natural glow to make you feel beautifully confident - a great boost to the self-esteem just before labor!


Choose 1 or all 3 for the perfect gift for mommas-to-be. (Great combo for a Baby Shower gift too!)



Bride-to-Be

Did you know I have many packages already crafted for Brides-to-Be? The bride in your life will be so grateful for either of these amazing bundles. They would also make a great bridal shower gift from her "bride tribe!"

Jet Setter

Looking for gifts for the person in your life who is always on the move? Lucky for you, I am obsessed with travel and have already compiled my must-haves for any trip. (Although, I have not left town without a spray tan in over 15 years, so I would absolutely add a gift card for a *Rapid Tan if it were for me!)

*Ideal Complex Eye Gel: This cutting-edge eye gel strengthens, firms and lifts the skin around the entire eye area, including the eyelid. Its light gel texture is excellent for all skin types.

*Bio:Vegane Skin Food Sheet Mask: I always pop one of these on after a plane ride to restore my face from that dried out feeling.

*Active Broad Spectrum SPF: This formulation provides water-resistant, broad-spectrum protection with a light finish and is reef safe!


Bronzed Beauty

Is the babe in your life constantly tanned and glowing? I know she'll love the following!


Perfect Glow Bundle

For the girl who loves to be perfectly bronzed all year long!

*1-month Tanning Membership - for an airbrushed, contoured, Norvell Sunless Tan

*Shower Cleanser - to balance her PH and give the base for an even, stunning glow

*Dermasuri - Made with unique fabric texture, the mitt visibly removes surface layers of buildup and dead skin instantly. The mitt catches and sloughs off dead cells  (which appear like small gray rolls) by simply rolling it off your skin. Reveal your healthy and smooth skin underneath.

*CC Gradual - Multipurpose lotion created to control color depth offers CC cream benefits to help moisturize, brighten and firm the skin with a bronzer for an instant tan.



"Glow Box" for the at-home tanner

For the gal who likes to add a little bronze at home each day.

*Tan Mousse - Light-weight, velvety mousse, with immediate color for a long, lasting tan.

*Mitt applicator - Norvell Sunless Blending Mitt - For a streak-free flawless finish. Whether applying self-tanning Mousse, Lotion or Spray, the Norvell Applicator Mitt is the perfect tool.

* Spray Tan - help her get to the next level - if she likes a little at-home tan, she'll LOVE a hand contoured airbrushed tan!



Lash Lover

We ladies have always had an obsession with our lashes! Now, more than ever, with a limited "above the mask" look being our go-to, we want bold, long, curled lashes. I recommend these two options (for pretty much ANY woman in your life).





Lash Newbie

*Keratin Lash Infusion Treatment - this has become our MOST POPULAR treatment of the year. Join the healthy LASH lift Revolution! Our Keratin Lash Infusion creates beautifully lifted lashes that are longer, fuller, and stronger. The TREATMENT increases the volume in the diameter of each lash by 40%. Our Deep Black Tint will give a deep and shiny effect. Results last 6-8 weeks!!! 

*NovaLash Aftercare Kit - The gift of caring for her investment! Contains lash pads, lash wand, and extension safe mascara.



Lash Pro (aka for the girl who already loves and gets our lash extensions. You could also consider purchasing a refill gift card for her!)

*Lash Doctor - Lash+doctor by NovaLash is an eyelash and eyebrow growth serum that conditions, strengthens, and maintains healthy hair growth. Perfect for ladies who are already in love with their extensions and want to enhance the effect.

*NovaLash Aftercare Kit - The gift of caring for her investment! Contains lash pads, lash wand, and extension safe mascara.

*NovaLash Liner - NovaLash’s LashLiner is a micro-slim lining pencil that can reach where no other eyeliner can, in between each lash!




Appreciation Gifts

Do not give that poor teacher another mug or Starbucks gift card. Help your child stand out from the crowd with these teacher pleasing options! I find our teachers enjoy simple treatments with lasting results.


*Brows on Fleek & NovaLash Mascara - a brow wax, shape, and tint paired with our beeswax-based mascara will have her feeling beautifully confident with or without a mask.



*Facial Kit - gift her an at-home spa night! Our facial kits are the perfect pick-me-up for someone with a busy schedule! Plus she's going to see instant and lasting results (and you'll be her new favorite PTA member).





Best Gal Pal

She's your very best friend and she'd do anything for you! So you know you want to do something really nice for her this holiday season? Any of these options will be a cherished gift.

*KLI - treat her to having the most fabulous natural lashes. She'll thank you!

*Spray Tan - The most common compliment after a spray tan - "Did you lose weight" - she'll feel instantly confident.

*Instant Radiance Eye Patch - she'll love the tingle these babies provide - and of course the after-effects of a visibly younger, relaxed and glowing look in just 20 minutes.

*Lip Plumping Complex - this rose colored gloss plumps your lips while you're wearing it. (You're going to want one too)

*Anti Aging Set - feeling generous? There is no better time to encourage your bestie to start caring for her skin for the future! Ask us for a customized collection for her!


That Friend/Family Member who has everything

C&E Advanced - This is one of the few vitamin C and E formulas that makes a difference to your skin (sorry to tell you but the C Serum that's combined with water isn't doing anything!!) This is our most advanced antioxidant formula which diminishes dark spots, soothes irritated skin and reduces signs of aging.

*Diamond Eye Cream - Combining cutting-edge technology and refinement, the Diamond collection is formulated with a synergy of precious diamond powder, a peptide complex, and snow algae to achieve a divinely radiant complexion and visibly younger skin.



College Student

Scratching your head for what to get the college students in your life? Do you have a Tulane or Loyola undergrad on your list? She'll love any of these items (or combine them for the Ultimate Care Package)

Glowing School Spirit

*Spray Tan Membership - the studio is within walking or streetcar distance of both campuses. She'll love a monthly tan membership from Uptown Charm. Our tans are 100% safe, airbrushed tans (never harmful beds), with the highest quality Norvell Sunless solution. Our ladies leave feeling beautifully confident instantly.

*Mini Norvell Exfoliator: to achieve a perfect, even glow every time.

*Eco Charm Glitter - I carry biodegradable glitter in all the team spirit colors!



Beginning to Care

While a number of products fit under this heading, the facial kits NEARLY made this list (we find that our college ladies tend to start caring about their skincare products right about now) I know that a Healthy Skin Starter Set will be great for her completion and she'll appreciate the introduction into proper skincare. Add a beeswax-based mascara to begin the ideal care for her lashes, and she'll be ready to go!

Healthy Skin Starter Set - Includes Full Size: Oily/Problem Facial Wash, Smoothing Toner & Rebalance Moisturizer.

Novalash Mascara - beeswax-based to mosturize your lashes, rather than dry them out like the other formulas.




Last but not least -

The Guy in Your Life

Do you never know what to get your fella? You would be shocked by how many men LOVE a facial! I highly recommend a men's brow wax and a facial combo to get your Mr. refreshed for the new year!

*Man's brow wax and a Charm Signature Facial (We also call this combo a Groom Tuxedo Chic)


Bottom line, bring your list in and I will help you find whatever you need! Or send me an email with your list and we can do it all for you and ship it! We're here for you babe. (You can also send this blog link to a friend/family member with a note about your favorite section!)
